Board of Supervisors held a regular meeting on Monday, December 17, 2001. All members, Mr. Patten and Ms. Howley were present and the minutes approved as submitted.

Road master Dave Allen reported that he had completed a traffic study for the intersection of Stockford and Fairville Roads. This is a dangerous intersection and should have a stop sign. He will submit the information to Dave Patten to draft an ordinance for erection of the stop sign. Hillspring Road culvert has been put in and the Board signed the quit claim deed for the road. Dave will look further into information from PSATS regarding the cleaning of drainage ditches along state roads now being the responsibility of townships and not PennDot.

Rusty Drumheller reported an increase in building permits this month. Matt Houtman, Township Engineer, did inspect Courts at Longwood, Harrison lot, and everything seems to be in order. There was a question on the street trees on his lot but they do conform to what is on the approved plan. Mr. Patten reported he wrote the real estate group holding the escrow on tree replacement and asked for a release of monies to the township. This will amount to approximately $7500. Mr. & Mrs. Chen of 605 Willow Glen did some earth moving and should have gotten a permit. The work was completed by the time Rusty issued a work stop order. Rusty did talk to the Chen's and advised them about stabilizing the ground where the work was done.

Orenshaw - Mr. Batelli was present representing Mr. Orenshaw and Ms. Kates. Mr. Orenshaw was issued a stop work order last week since he deposited fill on a portion of a lot owned by Ms. Kates which was outside the disturbance area approved for the building. Mr. Orenshaw is Ms. Kates's fiancé and is the general contractor for the house. Mr. Drumheller would not issued the CO until the land disturbance issue was resolved. Ms. Kates would like to move into the house. It was agreed that Mr. Orenshaw must move the dirt towards the house into the area approved for disturbance within 45 days. Ms. Kates posted a cash escrow of $3000 which the township will deposit and hold until the work is completed. Upon satisfactory completion of this work, the township will return to Ms. Kates the $3000. If the work is not complete within the 45 days, the township will use the escrow to complete it. Mr. Drumheller was advised by the Board that he can issue a CO for Ms. Kates who is the owner of the property.

PennDot has approved a left turn signal for Ponds Edge Drive (westbound) and will revise the existing permit for approval by the township.

Jeff Blanton has purchased the 7 acre lot at the corner of Brintons Bridge and Pocopson Roads. He would like to subdivide it into 2 lots and have a shared driveway
